Still need a few folks at the races as lap scorers, aid handlers, and such, or come by for a few hours and apprentice with experienced racewalk judges. Preferably each person volunteers for a 4.5-hour shift 6:30am - 11:00am or 10:30am - 3:00pm, or pick your own hours. Volunteers join the athletes for barbeque lunch starting at 11:00am. Volunteers are also invited to the Friday evening banquet - place your menu request (listed on registration form below) early or take pot luck. Drop me a line!
